The world is Gamma Terra, the Gamma World. Join us as we run through creating our first set of characters in this strange new world.

Drunks and Dragons Random Encounters – Shadowrun #1

I hope you are both sitting and in possession of 77 d6 because we have finally started Shadowrun! Y’all, Shadowrun is confusing so we had to bring in an expert. Please extend your loving appreciation to Tondi (@diceheroes) for agreeing to join us on this dystopian adventure! In this, the first episode, we take some time out to learn about the world of Shadowrun. We knew that several of you wonderful listeners would be just as ignorant of Shadowrun as we were so we decided to make the first 2 episodes focused on learning about the game. Less insane adventures but more insane knowledge! You can share these episodes with your children as you teach them how to Shadowrun. We are extremely excited to get into the actual gameplay since it seems completely foreign to Dungeons and Dragons. Thank you so much for Kickstarting both our campaign last year and our hearts. We love you! Follow us on Twitter! Tim Lanning, Mike Bachmann, Jennifer Cheek and Michael DiMauro. Watch the video below! Subscribe on iTunes Subscribe via RSS (feedburner) Direct Download
